OVERALL CONSTRUCTION Filed Jan. 21, 1935 fix 0K1: 1 39x9479 Patented Jan. 19, 1937 PATENT OFFICE OVERALL CONSTRUCTION Edwin L. Patrick, Indianapolis, Ind., assignor to C. B. Cones & Son Mfg. 00., Indianapolis, Ind., a corporation of Indiana Application January 21, 1935, Serial No. 2,653
My invention relates to overalls, and it is my object to produce a garment of this type which will provide a measure of support for the back and waist of the wearer, which will be strong and will be able to withstand the strains placed upon it when worn, and which will be of attractive appearance.
In carrying out my invention I cut the material of which the overall is. formed so that the garment, at its sides, will extend upwardly somewhat above the Waist of the wearer, and I provide a relatively high back from which straps extend over the wearers shoulders for attachment to the usual bib on the front of the garment. These straps are formed as continuations of the material forming the back of the garment and are reenforced by re-enforcing strips which extend down the back of the garment, preferably to a point adjacent the waist of the wearer.
The accompanying drawing illustrates my invention: Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the finished overall; Fig. 2 is a development of the rear portion of an overall, the left-hand half being shown in finished form and the right-hand half in partially finished condition; Fig. 3 is a fragmental view of the rear portion of an overall shown in Fig. 2 but on an enlarged scale showing the construction of the garment in finished form but with a part of the strap re-enforcement broken away; and Fig. 4 is a transverse section on the line 4-4 of Fig. 2, but on an enlarged scale.
My overall, as is clear from Fig. 1, has the usual waist portion 5, legs 6, bib 1, and shoulder straps 8. My invention is primarily concerned withthe back of the garment which is shown developed in Fig. 2. This back is formed of two pieces of textile material l0 and II, the lower portions of which form the backs of the legs and the upper portions of which form the shoulder straps 8. The pieces in and H are joined together by a seam l2. In the finished garment, the outer side edges of the pieces I0 and II will be joined by suitable seams [3 to the side edges of a complementary front. The seams l3 will extend down the outside of the legs of the wearer, the material being preferably cut so that the upper ends of such seams will be located somewhat above the wearers waist.
Above the upper ends of the longitudinal side edges of the pieces I!) and H, the material is cut away upwardly and inwardly on smooth curves to the bases of the shoulder straps 8 which are adapted to extend over the shoulder of the wearer and to be secured to the bib 1 on the front of the garment. As is clear from Figs. 1 and 4, the base of each of the straps 8 is located well above the uppermost point of the side-seams l3 of the garment, so that the garment is continuous across the back of wearer for a considerable height above the waist.
The shoulder straps 8 are provided with reenforcements it, such re-enforcements conforming to the shape of the straps but extending downwardly beyond the base of the straps, preferably to a point slightly below the upper ends of the seams l3 at the sides of the garment. For the sake of appearance, the lower end of each re-enforcement l6 may be disposed within a hip, pocket IT, as indicated at the left in Fig. 2.
At the point where the side edges of each re-enforcement it meets the edges of the piece It or H with which it is associated, the material of such piece is notched, as indicated at 20, to a depth equal to the width of the hem. Below each notch 20, the marginal edge of the material of the garment is folded inwardly of the garment and sewed in place to form an ordinary hem 2i shown in unfolded condition at the right in Fig. 2 and in folded condition in Figs. 1 and 3. Above the notches 20, the marginal edges of the material of the garment are folded in the opposite direction as indicated at 22 in Figs. 2 and 3. The longitudinal edges of the re-enforcements l6, for the entire length of such re-enforcements, are folded inwardly as the re-enforcements are secured in place. Thus, for the entire length of each of the shoulder straps the edges of the pieces l0 and l l as well as the edges of the reenforcements l6 are hidden from view.
I claim as my invention:
1. In an overall, a back of textile material cut at its upper end to provide two shoulder straps, the bases of said straps being located above the waist of the overall, and a strap-reinforcement of textile material secured to each of said straps and to said back, each reinforcement being of substantially the same width as its associated strap throughout the length of said strap and extending upwardly to the end of the associated strap and downwardly on said back, notches in the edges of said back where such edges meet the edges of such strap-reinforcement, seams at the edges of said strap-reinforcement and hems at the edges of said back below said meeting points, both formed by folding edge-material under, and hems at the edges of the reinforced shoulder straps formed by folding over the marginal edges of said back-material above said notches and a point adjacent the waist of the garment, said strap-reinforcement being of substantially the same Width as said strap throughout the length of said strap, the edges of said back being notched at the points where they meet the edges of the reinforcements, the edges of the material of the back below said notches being turned inwardly of the garment to form a hem and such edges above said notches being turned outwardly of the garment to be covered by the reinforcements.
